Title: Stone block house, wine cellar and the Swishy wood fired oven.
Description: Rado, I just thought you may be interested in a picture of our Bread Oven. She's a beauty in our slang language! We have been cooking lots of absolute wood fired pizzas and bread. For casseroles we use the solid cast iron frying pan and a smaller camp oven. They work great. It's everything I wanted it to be.
At Christmas time I got the oven going about 04:00
Linda had bought a large half cooked ham and then covered it all over in a pastry about 10mm thick. Into the oven it went and cooked till about 08:30
We had lots of people here for our traditional BBQ Breakfast, but when we brought the Ham out we just blew them away. Best Ham ever - moist and tasty. Yumohh. Everyone saying "you cooked this in the Pizza Oven?" You betcha! (another slang language expression we use) Isn't that great?
Oven is built in a great entertainment area we have established. I have a stone block house at one end which is our wine cellar and the oven at the other. Can you imagine sitting in the middle - "I think I will have another wine - no I think I will have some hot bread - Bugger it, I think I will have both." (slang slang slang)
Thanks so much for the CD and your expertise. If ever you wish to come and have a look, send us an email. Could be a good excuse for another light up. We only live at Karalee which isn't that far from you so come up for a visit Mate one day!
Kind regards, Peter and Linda.
